|Route outline (key)|
The B1147 is a short road in central Norfolk.
Until the 1990s it started on the A47 in the centre of East Dereham and left town along Theatre Street. When the A47 bypass was built, the B1147 was also taken out of the town. It now starts at a GSJ on the A47 on the eastern edge of town and follows the pre-bypass A47 away from East Dereham through Etling Green before heading north and regaining its original route to the south of Swanton Morley. The old route still has priority as the current B1147 has to TOTSO here.
The B1147 continues north through Swanton Morley and crosses the River Wensum. It goes through Bylaugh Wood before ending on the A1047 Bawdeswell bypass.
